12oz no wax. Pours deep black with a small ring of dark brown lace. Aromas of dark fruits, chocolate, light vanilla, and slight oxidation. The flavor is smooth with chocolate, oaky notes, raisin, light soy sauce, and a touch of warming alcohol. Overall nicely done and easy to drink.

This little guy? Donít you worry about this little guy. 12 ounce bottle poured dark black, aromas of fudge dipped in bourbon with some light vanilla. Holy moly was this beer great, flavors matched the aromas, this is a pretty amazing stout that seems like it overlooked, if you have any of this stuff, please send some to me, I will gladly take it off your hands.

2/16/2011: Listermann Cincinnatus (Stout Aged in Bourbon
Barrels)... Aroma: Madagascar vanilla; caramelized sugar; subtle
bourbon; just a hint of char; great aroma - smells VERY promising.
Appearance: Dark ruby brown color with a gathering tan-colored head
thatís thick and lasting. Flavor: Chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon
with lots of nice caramelized maltiness and accompanying sweetness;
really nice bourbon coming through in the middle through the finish
along with a bit of barrel char; nice alcohol burn. Palate:
Medium-full to full body; creamy and smooth; sticky on the lips.
Overall: Wow, this is actually a really good - maybe even great -
beer... Obviously they must have rebottled another brewerís beer!
Just kidding! Itís really nice to see a good, drinkable Listermann
beer that I can get excited about.

Belmont bottle chosen because it was local and had a creepy face on it; glad mine didnít have the annoying wax like in the picture. Opaque pour with a small tan head of tight bubbles. Big aroma of grain, malt, cereal and a hint of bourbon. Flavor is mostly bourbon; a little hot though. Honestly not sure why the ratings are relatively low because this fairly tasty; great if youíre a bourbon fan.

Acquired in a trade with phaleslu, thanks Peter! It poured a dark brown color with a small off-white head. The aroma was of chocolate from the beginning with mild bourbon, vanilla and barrel notes throughout. There was also some mild spiciness that came through with a hint of dark fruit. The taste was of roasted malts, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and some boozy alcohol. Very well done.

Huge aroma of bourbon coming off this thing! And thatís all I can detect. Lots of bourbon follows on the tongue--along with very sweet malt notes. Overall, one of the best beers I have tried from ANY Cincinnati brewer. Listermann really went for it on this one and I approve. *12oz bottle, 2012
